6 April 2021By Miranda Blazeby

South African yard Southern Wind has teased a new SW108 Hybrid sailing yacht model.

Described as the “new era of smart custom sailing yachts”, the SW108 Hybrid is designed by Nauta Yachts and Farr Yacht Design with engineering penned in-house.

The yacht is based on “a versatile design platform”, according to the yard and is designed to IMO Tier III compliance. It will feature both hydropower generation and electric propulsion, with hybrid propulsion allowing zero-emission cruising in silent mode.

The yacht will also feature an extra-wide beach club aft with a garage large enough to hold a five-metre tender.

Southern Wind described the new model as “the ultimate balance between customisation, innovation, reliability, sustainability and efficiency.”

More details are set to be revealed soon.
